Sky Refuses to Air BT’s Ads for its Premier League Coverage: The Daily EPL

Despite the way that Sky has helped the Premier League become so popular, there is a lot to despise about the way the Rupert Murdoch company does business. They’re incredibly self-serving. If there’s a sporting event or news story that they don’t either have the rights to or they didn’t get the scoop, they’ll often ignore it or will certainly pay far less attention to it compared to one of their own Sky Sports exclusives. Plus, Sky hypes everything they show, which gets old real quickly.

In related news, Sky has refused to air BT’s ads for its Premier League coverage. BT Vision has acquired some of the UK rights to the Premier League, but Sky doesn’t want to  give their competition any edge at all.

This isn’t something new either. In 2008, we caught Sky Sports being incredibly childish against one of their competitors at the time — Setanta Sports.
